the development of new technology is bringing much more rapid change to the system that can't be disruptive. i think embracing these changes will allow a much more efficient utilization of energy resources. the challenge before us is to enable the system to be more efficient through the utilization of technology and foster the development of a diverse set of competitive energy resources while at the same time and sure we have the power and reasonable rates for consumers. as a result of the technology we are experiencing a supply of natural gas and resulting gas prices at the lowest since 2002. this is changing the economics of electric generation resulting the retirement of older and less efficient units and most recently some nuclear plants. the generation being built is primarily combined gas plants, wind and solar generation. this appears likely to continue. driven by a significant degree the economics on low-priced gas and the development of more productive when the turbines and panels. the other drivers are little to no growth, public policie polics the standards, compliance with the rule

our technology, and because of the greed and cheap labor, they are the ones who are running this whole fiasco throughout the world. until we get people up there -- and the congress and so forth, and the greed in the pride -- basically they look at what the people of the united states of america needs and start working for the country again, we will never ever be able to continue. worse -- wars are not the answer. anybody feels pride in their own country. that it isis agreed greed. think it is greed. things will change but it is the greed that is killing everybody. never ended, it just has been moved overseas. he will see this around the world. that is all i have to say about the situation. this is from one of our regular tweeters -- you can send us a tweet at @ cspanwj. smaller is better, a look at the us military out at west point. --begins with these words democrats line, good morning. i was looking at a question you are asking. was honest,g everybody was being honest -- i am in georgia. these hear me out. we are in a red state that republicans control. do isbill they detrimental to
like a good idea. dagen: incredible application of technology. and talking about technology you can learn a lot about people from their instagrams, what they ate for dinner and they are analyzing how happy people seem based on their instagram phone 0s. the happiest sitting in the united states is st. louis, missouri. a lot of smiling faces. another city in missouri, kansas city, followed by ohio, indianapolis, pittsburgh, new york, los angeles, we will show you why. why people are not happy. connell: this is a shameless plug for social media. dagen: you i just knocked in the photo. connell: energy prices on the rise. virgin galactic has been -- and midwest, and the markets. dagen: and spend technology to change the way you see the game. with fidelity's options platform, we've completely integrated every step of the process, making it easier to try filters and strategies... to get a list of equity options... evaluate them with o p&l calculator... and execute faster with our more intuitive trade ticket. i'm greg stevens, and i helped create fidelity's options platform. it's one more i
that technology. we'll go from new york to detroit. the motor city officially going through bankruptcy. a judge yesterday gave detroit the green light to file for chapter nine bankruptcy protection ruling it is unable to pay $18 billion in debt. there is a march 1st deadline for the reorganization plan to be filed. the emergency manager is expected to have a fresh draft next month. >>> outgoing mayor dave bing says it's a chance to put the city on a new course. >> we're going to have to fight. our fight has to be together. if we have a future as far as our children and grandchildren are concerned, we have to fix the problem now. we can't continue to kick that can down the road and not make tough decisions. >> those tough decisions include the city's pensions. the judge ruled billions of dollars in pensions could be cut even though michigan's constitution prohibits cuts to pensions. the state's largest employee union already filed an appeal. the ruling could have implications across entire country for retirees already struggling to make ends meet. >> we have the american dream that if you work l

infrastructure? >> if the engineer had dropped dead we have technology that would automatically be able to see the speed the train was traveling, be able to detect a curve and stop the train. it is an automatic brakes control the train should have had and most countries already have that. so the government has to do that because those may private sector have to think in terms of profit as opposed to their lives. the federal government has to negotiate. connell: they are already doing that in new york on metro-north, it is just not mandated yet. this happened before that went into effect. >> that is where the federal government comes in. god knows we need controls and regulation, and we have to make certain technology is there. dagen: should taxes supplement that? supplement commuter rail and those things commuters use by taxing people driving into the city. >> we would not even have to think about having additional taxes placed on taxpayers who are already overburdened if we close the loopholes that are involved, increase the taxes, lowering the taxes for the wealthiest. they should be closed.
in the late 70s, this began to unravel. and technology made it easier for companies to do more with less. eliminating certain job occupations. jon: if you'd like to continue to watch his remarks, we have them streaming for you live. the president talking about income inequality and something that he says is in part justified by the affordable care act. jenna: this fox news alert, telling you a little bit about what is happening with the steelers and the ravens. what happened is the baltimore ravens look like they were going to run back to score a touchdown when mike tomlin stepped up and put your foot in and put it out. it almost looks like he is doing the hokey pokey. and so he said he would apologize for that and take whatever punishment would be handed down. so he will be fine for that one little step, $100,000, plus that the steelers may have to forfeit some choices in the 2014 draft. so we are not allowed to show you the play unfortunately. but if you are a football fan, you have seen this plenty of times. we will keep you will posted in the meantime, we will be right back with more

that looking to use this cost-effective drone technology in the coming years. good for amazon. i congratulate them. the f.a.a. is charged with the responsibility of coming up with ways to regulate drones for safety reasons. but who's watching out for the privacy of american citizens? congress has the responsibility and the duty to set clear regulations for all drones in domestic use. absent legislation to prevent surveillance of americans, companies could use drones not only for delivery but other ways that in my opinion violate the constitutional right of privacy. the issue of concern, mr. speaker, is surveillance, not the delivery of packages. that includes surveillance of someone's back yard, snooping around with a drone, checking out a person's patio to see if that individual could buy or needs a new patio furniture from the company, photographing swing sets, pools or the people that are in the pools or even looking into windows, all of that could be done with the use of drones by corporate america or by individuals. this could all be possible. so congress must ensure that the expanded us

challenge here, we hope from the technology standpoint, is how do we figure out a way and it can't be that hard with the technology that exists today for somebody to be able to utilize the empty parking around the site, that is within an easy walking distance and frankly the transit availability of the public transportation is the most attractive part of the site for us, and between cal train, and muni and bart and transbay terminal. and the ability thousands of giants fan do to walk from their homes or from their businesses to the site which is unavailable to us now. >> okay, thank you. i want to echo what my fellow commissioners and adams said what this represents to the see and also to see the warriors come back to san francisco, and i do want to say more about what this process is about. and not about to let the project at this point as he pointed out, we are in i think a multiphased and as some of the members of the public have said that we are seeing one piece and we are not seeing the whole project and there are other pieces in terms of the residential towers of the hotel

[applause] >> thank you very much, commissioner. i can still call you commissioner, i hope. i appreciate your warm and thorough introduction. i am an amateur radio operator. there are a lot of members of congress who actually pretend to be hams. i am actually the real thing. i will put that up, if you don't mind. i hope i'm not covering up too much of the hudson institute, but i am going to talk about the hashtag as part of my remarks. i'm delighted to be here this morning, honor to be with you. it is always fun to see where good government servants wind up after their service. the hudson institute i think made a really shrewd decision and choice in bringing rob mcdowell on board. your insight, knowledge, and certainly the intersection between technology
for the 3d technology in the senate. what is going to happen this week? >> i think what is going to happen is the senators that want to go further, who say this is not enough and the issue of 3d printed guns needs to be dealt with, they'll make that position on but they'll pass the house bill at the end of the day. everyone admits that's better than nothing and the reality, the sad depressing reality is if y you have to get the nra support to pass any gun bill. i think that's what's going to happen at the end of the day. >> part of the sort of political strategy of this is i think is one of the reason -- chuck schumer has been talking about making this a one-year extension. the idea being maybe if you extend it for a year, it comes up after the 2014 elections and then maybe you can pick up -- we're hearing about the republicans who are scared of tea party primary challenges. maybe then you can -- after the election, you can pick them off in the lame duck session. it is a strategy to maybe get more comprehensive gun legislation then. is that -- you start looking at the futility of the last

. of course, fedex delivers millions of packages and are they concerned about amazon's new drone technology in a statement to fox they tell us, while we can not speculate about this particular technology but i can say making every customer experience outstand something our priority and anything we do from a technology standpoint will be with that in mind, jon. so, very interesting response there they don't seem terribly concerned right now but, hey, we may see drone technology in the future. a little bit more information on fedex. look at some busy packages we saw this morning a truck heading out. it was thousands of package that is were shipped out this morning across the area. 90,000 trucks have been deployed across the country today including hundreds of trucks from this bronx facility. a staggering number of packages you see, because 131 million cyber monday shoppers will actually make a lot of their purchases off their mobile phones. one in five will actually do that. so if you do the math, the 22 million packages that fedex is processing today on this record-breaking history, historic
this technology, you have a set of rules, look, i'm going to look at 2 rules there. nobody's done that before? that's not my problem. you're going to screw a lot of things up. we're going upset some people. what i suggest is that people should look for targets of opportunity. there are a lot of institutions and places that are fascinating. if you were to come out and look and say i'm going to do that, you could get an audience. for a million people sitting and waiting for the health care decision. we have to thank cnn and fox for contributing to the reputation that the blog develops. we have to thank the press in many different ways. but it's an extraordinary statement about how it is there's a hunger for information out there. how there are a series of institutions that their goal is not to make themselves more accessible. the supreme court is ironic because they're the most open. you know all the cases they're going to hear. you see the results in their opinions. unlike the presidency, unlike congress in any way. so at the same time it does little to explain itself to the public. it leaves
with the u.s. on their security issues. we have tried to transfer the technology and know-how that we have acquired from 40 years of fighting drug traffickers and terrorism. we have been fighting organized crime and we are now using that know-how to help the caribbean and the islands and central america, and we are now also promoting the integration through initiatives like the ,acific alliance with mexico -- a best-peru performing economies of latin america. we got together and decided to integrate more. things are working quite well. it he has become an attraction for many investors and for the world. we will continue on with that initiative and try to integrate the whole continent. therefore, i think we are doing well on the economic side. we are doing well on the social side. we are performing well on the international front. but of course, the cherry on the pie would be the peace process. if we are able to finish this peace process, then i think the future for columbia and the region would be even much better. the question i put to good people -- i put to the people is, if we have ach

an undetectable firearm. but here's the second problem. the second problem is that this new technology that is pretty widely available already, called 3-d printing, has made it really easy to make firearms that comply with the existing law but are still potentially undetectable. why is that? because to be a legal weapon, you have to have a certain percentage of the weapon be metal so that it can be picked up by a metal detector or a x-ray machine. but because we can now make very creatively constructed weapons with 3-d printers, that piece of metal can be easily removed before it goes through a metal detector and still be used without the metal on the other side of the detection unit. thus, essentially erasing the benefit of having a metal component if the metal component can just be stripped out. it's a pretty simple update that we have to make here. all we have to say is that the metal piece of the gun has to be integral to the firing mechanism of the gun so that if you take the metal out to get it through a metal detector, it doesn't work on the other end. but, mr. president, we're
is technology may help us. there are now systems that rely on gps and satellite information more so than intensive equipment on the tracks. that would help in those situations where the passengers trains travel over tracks that are privately owned by other companies. it will take congress ordered it and in many cases, there are financial incentives, tax incentives, et cetera, cost sharing with the government that might have to happen. but it will take congress ordering the trains to complete this, because the honor, the trust and obey system has resulted in amtrak and a few others. it needs to go on passenger trains first. the bullet train in japan has this and that's why they can achieve speeds of 200 miles an hour. >> mary schiavo, thank you very much. the information. >> thank you. >> if you are in a train accident what steps can you take to be as safe as possible? something as simple as choosing the best seat could make all the difference. cnn's chris lawrence is in washington with more on that. what have you learned, chris? >> we'll tell you what a national safety expert tells his o
in metal detectors. however, we have these weapons thanks to 3-d technology. do you expect that common sense can prevail and will a simple ban be enough? >> i don't think it's ever enough. i think there's a lot of things to do to promote safety in this country as far as guns are concerned, but this bill this afternoon is what's on the suspension calendar, which means that's usually reserved for noncontroversial bills. they have to get two-thirds of the membership, so 290 votes. so i think they anticipate there won't be much problem. as a matter of fact, there may not even be a roll call vote on that. sponsored by a republican from north carolina. i think it has a good chance -- good chance of passage. i don't think you want to be on the other side of this very, very common sense measure. >> kentucky congressman, john yarmuth, great to see you today. >>> joining me now, jimmy williams and republican strategist hogan gidley. gentlemen, it's good to have you here. jimmy, i want to start with you because the president's statement today and also about his exclusive sitdown with chris matthe

buying information technologies. how we make ourselves more customer friendly. those are all things that we can improve. but the upshot is the government still does a lot of good. the last point i'll make on this is we've had a politics, frankly, the entire republican party brand since ronald reagan has been government's the problem. and if you day after day, week after week, election after election are running on that platform, and that permeates our culture and it's picked up by ordinary citizens who grow skeptical, then it's not surprising that over time trust in government declines. but as i said in a speech yesterday, the biggest issue that i see out on the horizon is how do we make sure an economy works for everybody and that every one of these young people can get a good job, pursue a career, support a family, not be loaded up by a hundred thousand dollars worth of debt. actually buy a home. how do we do those things that reduce inequality in our society and broaden opportunity? and government can't solve all of that, and we live in an economy that is global and technological
right now. think of what's happening with gtls, the company with the best technology for transforming natural gas into something similar to gasoline. as ceo sam thomas told us the other night, all the better to build the hard to construct big boxes that encompass the transfer technology and put them on boats to take them overseas. the company can't get enough workers to make these boxes. i know welding requires a particular skill set that may not be available in louisiana right now. it will take time, they will get there eventually. chart's also making a device to build out natural gas stations. and more important shell. yeah, shell's building them now. these stations cost between $1 million and $1.5 million. and these companies are building perhaps as many as 400 stations, and the cost is going down. once that buildout gets rolling, they'll get a reverberation as far as indiana, where cummins is located, because cummins is making truck engines that are perfect for long haul truckers. they've been waiting for these engines. don't forget about the pipe and train tracks that need to be
